      The future is here, folks, with virtual reality wiring itself into live performance events. Technology, design, and music mash together at CODA I.iii OK3D, where VR coders somehow jam with electroacoustic musicians. For you, the audience, this means sitting between two screens that project 3-D virtual landscapes inspired by the music that’s being fed to the coders. Prepare, in other words, to have your mind blown.

      Boca del Lupo presents CODA I.iii OK3D at the Fishbowl on Saturday (May 4).
